With the aim of contributing to the advancement of nursing skills and enhancing the quality of nursing services and education in Jordan, the Jordanian Nursing Council 'JNC' has conducted two courses at its premises, via electronic distance learning, in collaboration with both USA-based PESI Health Care and Dubai-based Medogy.
According to Mrs. Daad Z. Shokeh - Secretary General JNC, "The attendees of this workshop were introduced to the latest standards and guidelines implemented and endorsed by a number of renowned institutions, such as the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, among others.They were also familiarized with a number of effective RRT performance metrics, evaluations and best practice protocols, which seek to improve the practical and operational performance of nursing staff."
The second event, which was held on Monday, 8th October 2012, under the heading 'Creative Teaching Strategies for the Nurse Educator', presented by Ms. Theresa Puckett PhD, RN, CPNP, CNE.
Drs.Shokeh emphasized that the benefits of this second event: "This latest event aimed at availing a multitude of teaching and learning strategies that can be implemented by nurse educators at all levels; including college professors, staff developers, nurse preceptors and patient educators. It also introduced various approaches to designing learning strategies, demonstrating various ice-breaking team activities, identifying effective teaching learning strategies for different settings and more."
Both events were held at the premises of JNC Jordan and presented through electronic distance learning. Says Mr. Issam Marzouqa, Founding Partner and CEO, Medogy, "The workshops hosted by JNC were held with the primary objective of bringing the latest knowledge and expertise from the USA and sharing it in a cost-effective manner with members of the nursing community in Jordan."
He added that, "With the overwhelming attendance we saw, it is clear that this objective has been clearly and successfully met on both occasions."
Worth noting here is that continuing education credits were available to nursing professionals for the courses presented, and witnessed such a high demand that extra sessions will be required in order to accommodate the health professionals interested in attending.
According to one student attending the RRT seminar, It was amazing. We need more and more electronic distance learning courses to improve our knowledge and information.
